Neither time nor distance can sever a soul connection.
With his trial behind him and his freedom looming, Trey Palmer must press on without Jeremy. In his new home at the hospital, Trey finds friendship and acceptance from a vulnerable patient. The blossoming relationship threatens to eclipse Trey’s love and commitment to Jeremy who remains in prison. Jeremy seeks refuge in the protective arms of another man who’s hardly a replacement for his Trey. Do Trey and Jeremy truly share a soul connection strong enough to withstand the challenges time and distance have placed between them?
In Rescued Angel we learn more about Corey Levin’s one of the nicer CO’s within the prison. Corey has always been open and honest with the fact that he’s gay although he has never come right out and openly admitted to being gay since he started as a CO only because the majority of his co-workers are old-fashioned men who have never and will never openly accept anyone who is gay. Corey has recently become single when his ex-boyfriend left him because Corey prefers to stay home rather than constantly partying.
Jeremy has been attacked by his cell-mate Darren Anducci in fact Darren strangled Jeremy to death and it’s only the quick thinking and actions of Corey that bought Jeremy back through CPR. Darren has been sent upstairs to segregation whilst an investigation into exactly how and why he ended up as Jeremy’s cell-mate in the first place.
While Jeremy is coming to terms with the fact that he’s all alone in prison now that Trey has been officially cleared of all charges and the reality that he will never see Trey again, Trey is starting his six months’ rehabilitation in the mental health facility to help him transition back into society. It takes time but Trey realises that the only person who can help him now is himself so if he wants to help Jeremy get released he’s going to have to make the most of the next six months. It helps a lot that Trey has made a friend Neal Harris, relatively easily and quickly at the facility. Trey takes Neal under his wing much the same as he did with Jeremy in prison except that Neal is like a little brother and Jeremy is the love of his life.
Jeremy gets a new cell-mate Wesley Delaney. Unfortunately, Wes is not all that different from Darren in that he was diagnosed at age 10 with narcissistic personality disorder as well as more than likely being a sociopath! When Darren was sent to segregation Wes decided now was the time to take over the role of top-dog!
Things are changing at the prison and not in a good way. Jeremy is faced with the decision of becoming Wes’s “bitch” so he remains as safe as possible from Darren’s remaining loyal followers. The hardest part about that is the fact that he is still in love with Trey and everything he does with Wes feels like a major betrayal. Trey is slowly working through the feelings he does and doesn’t have about killing his step-father and the reasons behind it.
